"Treadkill", Way to Die #328, is the fourth death featured in "Wait, Don't Tell Me – You're Dead", which aired August 15, 2011 but first appeared on Spike's website July 26.

Plot

A voyeur named Chuck spies on his hot next door neighbour and her boyfriend while exercising on his treadmill. Chuck is too busy spying on his neighbor, but he's forgetting that he is still on the treadmill as he keeps on increasing the speed of the treadmill and falls, with his hoodie string catching on the cup holder. It tightens around his neck, cutting off blood and air from his brain so that he gets strangled to death.
